Damaged/lost SD Card?
#1
Simple question...

If a SD card is damaged for a Philips System One Auto, can I simply by a new blank SD card from a local store and pop it in or do I need a new card from Philips?
Is there anything special about these cards?
Do they info programed on them that the CPAP machine needs to read or does popping a new card in get all the formatting and data automatically put on them by the machine.

Thanks

You can use any generic SD card, once card inserted, machine write data on the card
On the S9, detailed data written directly on the card but therapy and compliance data stored in the machine up to 365 days

Yes, you can use a regular SD card. As long as that is what it used before, yes. Some older ones used a "Smart Card".

Sometimes a DME will put information on the card like settings but it is not needed for the machine to work. It will continue to do whatever it was told to do. It will run without the card in there.

Yes, when you put the card in, it will write onto it all that it has saved inside. You may lose some detailed data, not sure.

Back to the card, you only need one that holds 2g max. Anything more than that is a waste of money.
